Is it necessary to tile an entire kitchen floor? I've gutted the entire room leaving a bare concrete floor; cabinets and applicances are inbound. My wife wants me to tile the entire floor now, but I told her that would be a waste of time/money. Are there any other reasons why I shouldn't tile the entire room? Dishwasher/compactor height isn't an issue. Tiling after the cabinets are installed would give us the chance to take a drawer/door to match up wall paint, tile, and a granite countertop. Thanks in advance for the help for this first time home-owner/remodeler.

you can do it either way.

tiling the entire area makes leveling appliances and cabinetry alot easier and faster, plus if there is ever any remodeling in the future, the entire area is covered so you wouldnt have to fill in any areas of the floor should you decide to keep the tile.
